“Smells like potential.” 

We love Ted Lasso around the BE office. If you’ve seen the hit show, you know Ted is always on the lookout for opportunities for growth. Put a bit differently, he’s always curious. 

We’re no different here at BE. In fact, we’ve made it a company value: Be Curious

Why? Because curiosity leads to growth and positive change. And we saw a lot of that in Q1 among our team, clients, and even in our community. 

Read on for all the details. Here’s what we cover:
